MineProbe's PI will give a talk entitled "Humanitarian Robotics: Minefield Reconnaissance and Mapping" at Robotics and Automation for Humanitarian Applications (RAHA - 2016) in December 18-20th 2016, Amrita University, Kerala, India.
MineProbe workshop will take palce in conjunction with Second International Workshop on Recent Advances in Robotics and Sensor Technology for Humanitarian Demining and Counter-IEDs (RST 2016) to be hosted by Zewail City of Science and Technology in the beautiful city of Cairo, Egypt in October 27-30, 2016. MineProbe workshop is dedicated to present the progress of the different work packages the project.
RST is founded by MinePorbe PI and is organized by MinePorbe team in collaboration with Zewail City of Science and Technology and IEEE RAS Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (RAS-SIGHT). RST is designated for reporting recent research and development results in robotics and sensor technologies for humanitarian demining and the recent advances in Counter Improvised Explosive Device (IED) technologies. Detection and removal of landmines and improvised explosive devices, at the present time, is a serious problem of political, economical, environmental and humanitarian dimensions in many countries over the world. The workshop will feature plenary speeches, technical paper session, industrial panel session, and an exhibition of humanitarian demining and counter-IED technologies. Full paper submission deadline is July 18, 2016.
